Abdullah b. Adam is a member of the Muslim community in the UK. He participated in Jihad in various countries in the previous century. Although he is a free man today, he was imprisoned in the chaos following 9/11 when the mainstream Islamic notion of Jihad was hysterically conflated with terrorism and attacking civilians.
Had Sheikh Abdullāh Azzam been alive today, would the following have happened? Would there have been a 9/11? Would there have been ISIS? Would young Muslim men be travelling to Syria for ‘Jihad’ armed with boxes full of condoms? It is unlikely.
